PERSONAL MILESTONES & RECOGNITION

Upon enrollment, you will receive the FOSH GAITED JOURNEY patch. For Adult Amateurs and Youth, recognition will be given for 100, 250, 500 & 1,000 hours in each category and every additional 1,000 hours thereafter. For Professionals, recognition will be given for 500, 1,000, and 2,000 hours in each category and every 2,000 hours thereafter. At the end of each calendar year, your unused hours in each category maybe applied to your next consecutive membership year as you continue to amass hours towards milestones in your JOURNEY.
HOW TO ACCUMULATE HOURS

There are two categories for participation and growth. FOSH encourages involvement in both areas of the JOURNEY, but you may participate in and receive acknowledgements in one or both categories.

Recognition of hours will be applied into two separate categories: Saddle Time & Educational Time. If you participate in both categories, anytime your hours in each category total a 1,000 hour increment (Youth & Amateur: 500 hours in both categories, 500 + 500 = 1,000) (Professionals: 1,000 hours in both categories, 1,000 + 1,000 = 2,000), you will receive special recognition for your extraordinary dedication and achievement towards a “Pinnacle” award. Each additional set of combined 1,000 & 2,000 hours, respectively, will be recognized identifying your level and combined hours as you travel on your JOURNEY, “mastering” your personal equestrian knowledge and skills and achieving balance between education and implementation.
